I had a tooth extracted today(upper left molar), and I need to find out if it is normal to have a mild fever the day of extraction(99.0 - 99.1)? I have mild pain and swelling. It was a difficult extraction, but not painful. The dentist said that my roots were long and my bones were very strong, so it took her about 30-40 minutes of pulling, and working the tooth back and forth to finally get it out. I'm currently taking Advil and Tylenol for pain.
